Your child’s first steps, first words and the first time you send your child off to school are all incredible moments you will never forget as a parent. But what about your child’s first bad night’s sleep? Or your child’s first lesson in potty training? How do you prepare for these moments?

The Department of Defense and partner organizations have a number of tools and resources designed for parents with children age birth to 5 years old to answer questions like these and help prepare you for the kinds of parenting challenges that arise during the critical first years of a child’s life.

Get Savvy and Know Your Rights: The Military Consumer Campaign

I remember calling home from college one day babbling on to my parents about this “incredible” credit card deal I was offered in the mail. I can’t remember the details now, but I am sure I sounded something like this, “And no annual fee and no interest and a free trip to Hawaii and a fuzzy white unicorn for me to ride…” Well, maybe not the unicorn, but you get the idea. After my father told me not to sign anything, he uttered, “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.” Luckily I listened, and so began the first of many lessons on becoming a better, more educated consumer.

Spotlight on Troops to Teachers: Martin K. Screen | The White House

August’s Troops to Teachers Spotlight, Martin Screen, a retired Air Force chief master sergeant, teaches seventh and eighth grade math at Eddie White K8 Academy in Hampton, Georgia. Before beginning his second career as a math teacher, Mr. Screen served for 22 years as a communications specialist in the Air Force. Like most in the military, his assignments crossed the globe – several times. Nine US states and Japan, Germany and Saudi Arabia were “home” to Mr. Screen and his family at one point or another. He says that each assignment was filled with wonderful memories, opportunities and experiences.
